    Need 6 Bolt Rotors for Formula RX Brakes

    I'm moving my trusty old RX brakes to a new bike, and need a good 6 bolt rotor since my old bike used center lock rotors. I was looking at the Shimano XT Ice Tech rotors (115g for 160mm/134g for 180mm), but they're a bit heavier than what I was looking for. Also looking at the Avid HSX rotors (98g for 160mm/126g for 180mm)...any other good otions out there that'll work with the Formula RX? Thanks!

    Any 6 bolt rotor will work. I'm running RX with Magura Storm SL rotors with Jagwire Mountain Pro pads. Not sure of the weight but the stopping power is pretty good. May change to the Icetech rotors to try them out. Have heard lots of good stuff about them.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    I run RX with Avid HS1. They are rather grippy there.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    Need 6 Bolt Rotors for Formula RX Brakes

    Decided to go with the Formula 2 piece rotors; they look like a quality design, and a bit lighter than the XT's.

    They do have a good look and are light.
